A Look Back

A Job Well Done

Retiring NYU Stern faculty, C. Samuel Craig, Professor of Marketing and International Business and Director of the Entertainment, Media and Technology Program, and Charles J. Murphy, Professor of Management Practice, take a moment to reflect on their time at Stern.  
C. Samuel Craig


“Thirty-nine years go by very quickly when you are actively engaged with bright and highly motivated students every week. As I retire, I have fond memories of students, many of whom I have gotten to know well and now count as friends. What has been most satisfying is running into former students, now successful alumni in important positions. Equally rewarding are the times former students speak in one of my classes. I get to see firsthand what they have accomplished.”

Charlie J. Murphy


“I have enjoyed teaching Stern students from 16 to 60 and have been fortunate to teach very large sections—my favorite. I’ve been able to offer career advice to thousands of students, and have made friends with them all, as well as my fabulous faculty colleagues. I have also experienced the pride of walking with faculty, hearing the bagpipes, and the honor of speaking at five graduations. As a Stern MBA ’74, I have enjoyed every minute of the opportunities Stern has given me.”
